christmas cheer over at twin's



Twin has some awesome awesome christmas cheer going on over at her blog. She is taking part in an Advent Blog Tour, where each blog on the tour is assigned a day to post something jolly and christmas-y for visitors. Isn't that just too nifty? Jennie has posted an excerpt from A Christmas Carol, a recipe, and a free little giftie (ooooooo, aaaaah!)



We've been busy baking three batches of our all-time favorite Christmas cookies for all our co-workers. We've always called these cookies Viennese Crescents in our family, and they're very like the Russian Tea Cakes Hannah posted on the Recipe Box a few weeks ago. This year we're tweaking tradition by calling them Viennese Snowballs, because though I guess they are supposed to be crescent-shaped, we've always made them in little balls. Just like snowballs. So I'm not sure the new name will stick, but I do rather like it. Anyhoo, head on over for the recipe and some gift tags to download.

We always called these sand tarts or pecan sandies (we use pecans instead of walnuts). Thanks for reminding me of these!

In my family, snowballs are always made with walnuts, and crescents are always made with almonds ... the shape is how you know what you're getting!

Thanks for sharing the gift tags! My relatives are all getting little Christmas-themed chinese takeout-style boxes full of different cookies, and the gift tages will be a great finishing touch!
